The Apple Watch can be an incredible motivational tool to help you get back in shape. One of the most motivating features is the ability to share your Activity with your friends, check out which workouts they’ve completed, as well as invite them to compete in Activity Challenges to see who can come out on top by burning the most calories.

Maybe you’re ready to invite a friend to an Activity Challenge, and so you open your Fitness app to get started. As you’re scrolling through your friends list in the Fitness app, you notice something strange. Is someone missing?

One of your friends might’ve suddenly vanished from the app – but why?

Did your friend hide their Activity from you? Did they delete you altogether? There is an easy way to find out for sure.

How to See Who’s Hiding Their Activity from You in the Fitness App

  1. Unlock your iPhone and open the Fitness app.
  2. Tap the Sharing tab on the bottom right corner of your screen.
  3. Tap the (+) icon in the top right corner of your screen. There, you can see your Competition Invites, add new friends, and more.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of your screen to see a separate section titled “THESE PEOPLE ARE CURRENTLY HIDING THEIR ACTIVITY DATA FROM YOU.” This section may give you clarity on where your absent friend might have gone.

Keep in mind, though, that it’s your right to keep your data private, and it’s also your friend’s right to keep their data private, too – and so it’s best not to confront your friend about hiding their Activity. Simply challenge a different friend to the competition and have some fun with it!
